Study Shows a Child is Treated Every 3 Minutes in ER for Toy-Related Injury

December 15, 2014 - With the gift-giving season having arrived, researchers are warning parents of the injury risks toys can pose to children.

A child was treated in an emergency department every three minutes in 2011 for a toy-related injury, and more than 3 million children were treated for similar injuries from 1990 to 2011, according to a study conducted by the Center for Injury Research and Policy at Nationwide Children's Hospital.

Falls (46 percent) and collisions (22 percent) accounted for the most common ways children were injured.

Young children are at particular risk of choking on small toys or toy parts. During the study period, researchers found more than 109,000 cases of children younger than 5 swallowing or inhaling "foreign bodies." Riding toy-related injuries accounted for nearly half of all injuries to children 5 to 17 years old.

Tips to keep children safe with their toys include:

  • Follow age restrictions and guidelines.
  • Examine toys for small parts that could pose choking hazards.
  • Supervise children younger than 8 on riding toys.

Parents are also advised to check www.recalls.gov to learn if any toys their children own or play with have been recalled.

The study was published online Dec. 1 in the journal Clinical Pediatrics.

Hess, NDSC Partner to Provide Free Driver Safety Training in Tioga
 
December 2, 2014 - Traffic crashes are the number one cause of death for drivers between the ages of 14 and 24. To help prevent teen driver fatalities in Tioga, the North Dakota Safety Council and Hess Corporation partnered to provide free driver safety training to students at Tioga High School.
 
Alive at 25 is a 4.5 hour Defensive Driving Course designed to reduce traffic related injuries and fatalities for young drivers. The course focuses on behaviors, decision-making, and unique risks these drivers face every time they get behind the wheel. Thanks to special grant funding provided by Hess Corporation, the NDSC was able to provide this training, free of charge, to 65 juniors and seniors in Tioga.
 
"The goal of our partnership is to ensure these students receive access to training that could potentially save their life. We believe Alive at 25 is the right training to accomplish that goal," says Terry Weaver, NDSC Traffic Safety Coordinator.
 
To learn more about Alive at 25, go to www.ndsc.org or call Terry Weaver at (701) 223-6372.
